Join this year’s Turing Prize winner Yann LeCun and other pioneers in artificial intelligence for a no-nonsense discussion of whether a truly intelligent machine can be created – and, if so, how and when. The “thinking machines” that Alan Turing postulated in 1950 have already vaulted beyond us in specific
“One of the challenges in developing AI applications is obtaining the vast amount of data that’s required. Making matters worse, regulations and privacy issues pose obstacles to firms’ sharing their data. A possible solution is for firms to form a “data trust.” that serves as a fiduciary for the data
Since the turn of the century, some of the world’s most successful companies have increasingly focused on selling value to customers, rather than products or services. In other words, rather than simply developing new products or reducing their prices to remain competitive – companies have instead distilled and improved the
By definition, blockchain technology cuts out middlemen. In relying on networks of users and collective trust, it reduces the need for centralized networks and data storage. This trait made blockchain-powered currencies popular on shadowy parts of the internet, but it has the potential to do something more revolutionary than obscure
According IoT Analytics, there are over 17 Billion connected devices in the world as of 2018, with over 7 Billion of these “internet of things” (IoT) devices. The Internet of Things is the collection of those various sensors, devices, and other technologies that aren’t meant to directly interact with consumers, like phones or computers. Rather, IoT devices help provide information, control, and analytics to connect a world of hardware devices to each other and the greater internet. With the advent of cheap sensors and low cost connectivity, IoT devices are proliferating.
The big data technology’s adoption has shown lots of promises and is very popular among end-use industries. As big data adoption continues to spread, and integration with artificial intelligence and cloud becomes more streamlined, further growth is projected. The global big data technology and services market is poised to reach a valuation of over $118.52 billion by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 26.0% from 2015 to 2022.
There are now over 8000 vendors in the AI marketplace. These vendors cover the gamut from data science platforms enabled with machine learning capabilities to marketing automation tools that help to optimize advertising and everything in between.
